Lyrics of Reuben James

Ruben James in my song you live again
And the phrases that I rhyme are just the footsteps out of time
From the time when
I knew you Ruben James
Ruben James, all the folks around Madison County cussed your name
Just a no-account sharecropping colored man who would steal anything he can
And everybody laid the blame on Ruben James
Ruben James
You still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
A faded shirt the weathered brow
The calloused hand upon the plow
I loved you then and
I love you now Ruben James
Flora Gray the gossip of Madison
County died with child
And although your skin was black you were the one that didn't turn your back
On the hungry white child with no name, Ruben James
Ruben James with your mind on my soul and the bible in your right hand
You said turn the other cheek there's a better world awaiting for the meek
In my head those words remain from Ruben James
Ruben James
You still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
A faded shirt the weathered brow
The calloused hand upon the plow
I loved you then and
I love you now Ruben James
Ruben James one dark cloudy day that brought you from the fields
Until your lonely pine box came just a preacher me and the rain
Just to sing one last refrain for Ruben James
Ruben James
You still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
A faded shirt the weathered brow
The calloused hand upon the plow
I loved you then and
I love you now Ruben James
Ruben James
You still walk the furrowed fields of my mind
A faded shirt the weathered brow
The calloused hand upon the plow
I loved you then and
I love you now
Ruben James
